    Sprint phones are programmed to only work on Sprint's network. They contain a Sprint PRL and firmware that would clash with what Verizon uses.

    Could i remove the sprint firmware and replace it with the verizon firmware?

    Nope, cdma carriers won't activate phones on other networks.

    There are two options available to you
    1) Sell the phone and get a VZW Curve
    2) Get a Sprint Unlimited plan and forget about the usage of your minutes.

    Lots of bad information in this thread. 100% wrong about firmware. Just change the MSL to 000000, activate in on Verizon and then update the PRL.
